Sahara chief taken to Delhi by road

Three days after being remanded in police custody following issuance of a non-bailable warrant (NBW) by the Supreme Court, Sahara chief Subrata Roy was taken to Delhi by road on Monday.

The apex court had directed the police to ensure that Roy was present in court on Tuesday. A local court here had also directed the police to produce Roy before the Supreme Court by 2pm on Tuesday.

Roy, who had been put up at a forest department guest house at a popular picnic spot here since his arrest, was whisked away in a cavalcade of four to five SUVs on Monday.

Earlier in the day, politicians from several political parties paid a visit to the guest house to meet Roy, though many of them failed to see him. The visitors included a BJP legislator and a senior Congress leader.

A court here had ordered on Friday that Roy be sent to the police custody till March 4. The court said that it was for the police to decide where to keep Roy during this period. It, however, ordered that Roy must be produced before the 

apex court before 2 pm on Tuesday. The apex court had issued an NBW against Roy on Wednesday after he failed to appear before it in a case pertaining to refund of money to the investors in one of its companies.
